NBC Sends Anne Heche Sitcom to Series

at . Comments

NBC has picked up its second new show of the 2012-2013 schedule.

A week prior to its Upfront presentation in New York City, the network has announced that Save Me - a sitcom starring Anne Heche as a woman who thinks she is channeling God - has received a 13-episode order.

It may actually premiere in August - along with Matthew Perry's Go On - in order for NBC to take full advantage of its Summer Olympics coverage.
